Have We Gone Too Far in Our Quests for Tans?

Coca-Cola has been reported to have many uses, but according to dermatologists, this one is the most dangerous of them all. It’s summertime and we all are in quest of receiving a beautiful bronzed look for our skin. Typically, lying on the beach under the beaming sun works just fine. For some, going to the tanning salon works as well. Clearly, they are continuing to come up with new ways to tan without really tanning in a bed or under the sun. How much more creative and weird can you get?

People are now pouring Coca-Cola on their skin to advance their tanning. Over the years, Coke has proven to be one of those drinks that are being put to other uses outside of the ‘beverage’ category. It is said to clean rust of surfaces and it apparently makes an effective toilet cleaner. These uses have now raised a question “should we therefore be putting it inside our bodies?” Yes, we may drink it, which knowing some of its possible uses may encourage us to stop. But pouring it on yourself to create a tanned look could be too far.

Allure Magazine has told their readers that if you apply this beverage to your body just like you would apply tanning lotion, it will help with the UV rays and create a bronzed look for your body. We’re not sure if that is true or not, but some of us, like myself do not want to find out. Coca-Cola contains a high number of acidic dyes and chemicals that can destroy your skin cells and seep into your skin. Sounds a bit crazy because we drink it, but think about what is happening inside your body. WOW! You never thought about that until now, right?

Would you try this new beauty technique? I sure would not. Definitely don’t want to risk the factor of pouring something that dangerous onto my body. Maybe we should all stop drinking Coca-Cola all at once? HMMMM! BUT IT’S SO TASTEY & REFRESHING OMG!

I think I will stick to drinking it with my meals rather than suggesting it to my friends as a beauty tip. Even then, I will still be thinking of what it could do to me when I ingest it. Oh well! Going for the Coca-Cola at my backyard barbeques and picnics. PSA: DO NOT POUR COCA-COLA ON YOUR BODY… WE WILL LOOK AT YOU LIKE YOU ARE CRAZY! And you will definitely be sticky. HA HA
